I will do the EZ tune and my computer asks for a reboot. Then I go into BIOS and the settings seem all stock. Then I go into windows and it looks stock. Then I run LinX and it goes up to 1.35v and 4.3GHz. Which program trumps the others in terms of settings?

Basically, if I go to BIOS and do restore defaults, I should be back at stock. Should I use BIOS or windows to do the OC in your opinion? Found that the Windows programs make everything a little unstable. Got a lot of freezing in random places :/

So... maybe a bit of an unclear post. But i'm not sure how the best way to approach overclocking is.

http://www.overclockers.com/3step-guide-to-overclock-intel-haswell

I read that it's something to do with the adaptive voltage. For me, it seems that whatever Vcore I set in BIOS, a stress program like Prime95 or Linx will raise it by 0.2 V. But if I'm in idle or non load state, my voltage drops to 0.76V. I currently have C1E, thermal monitor, EIST disabled and C3/C6/C7 enabled. All other CPU voltage settings other than Vcore are set to auto.

I'm not sure about your situation though - stock going to that speed/voltage is a bit strange.

Sin0822 (or anyone else if you know the answer), what are the default values for System Agent (VCCSA) Voltage, CPU IO Digital Voltage, and CPU IO Analog Voltage? It seems like when they're set to auto they are always at +0.00 V.

I currently have my system stable at 4.6 GHz with RAM at low speeds, but now I'm trying to stabilize the IMC so I can run my RAM at the rated 2400 MHz.

So... i have the OC.

My BIOS freezes randomly. Windows is stable.

For example, sometimes I freeze on the Gigabyte splash screen. Also, when I try to save a BIOS profile, I freeze. What the heck...
post #74 of 1852
Maybe try flashing to the newest version of BIOS.

There have been reports of people getting better stability under the new BIOS (at least for the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H, but would be worth a try for other boards too). I'm currently using the newest F5 bios for my board, but I'm not sure what the latest version for yours is.

I get that too sometimes, usually right after I make a voltage change using the on/off switch thing.  I'm guessing BIOS issue.

post #76 of 1852
I'm actually a bit confused about the on/off switches. What is the point of switching them on when you are going to save and exit?

If it's on, it applies the overclock real time AFAIK.

Yep, that's my understanding also. If you click on and then apply it'll make the change right then instead of after the reboot. Not sure how much benefit that is though.

Just got my UD4 up Nd running with my 4770k, I'm getting a occasional bsod. Running Gskill RAM at 2133 witch I think may be doing it. Will memtest me enough to test to see of I got a bad stick?

You are mixing two different kits, yet of different density. Are you loading XMP as well? Different density kits have different subtimings, if you are loading XMP then that isn't going to work. IMO try auto or try to input your own settings.

I'm having the same issue, running (4) Corsair Vengenance 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 1.50v.

Running (2) sticks in any of the channels is 100% stable, running all 4 at once, no go, random blue-screens and hard-locks.
